Twitter chat tools?

  • 1.  Twitter chat tools?

    Posted Aug 22, 2017 15:14
    For those who run (or very actively participate in) Twitter chats, I'm curious: what do you use to follow and manage chats?

    I've been using Tweetchat or Twubs for years to follow and add hashtags - very useful in fast-moving chats. However, I find that they are both glitchy.  So when I'm facilitating #NPMC chat (for nonprofit communicators) I find myself opening up both of them each time, and then diving into the chat using whichever one is working! I'm okay with this, but is there an amazing tool/better option you use that's worth testing out?

    Thank you!

    They all have glitches but I only moderate chats with www.tchat.io as I have found it to be most consistent. I keep the hashtag feed open in twitter native to catch possible missed tweets and to see images/quote tweets.

    When time allows, I participate in #ESNChat, and they use tchat.io, which seems to work just fine. Good luck!

    Thank you, Christina and Larry! And apologies for my vacation-related delay in responding. 

    I think I tried tchat.io once upon a time, but it sounds like it's worth returning to it. I'll check it out again!
